A backhanded dive down the line is hard enough in itself, so too is a running throw. Doing both while also leading over the bag is a marvel.
The footwork to know he needed to throw off the bag on his right foot as he stepped on it if he was going to have enough to get to first while also managing to make sure that wasn’t going to cost him the out at third is an insane thing to think about. Those factors took longer to type and read than it did for him to make the play and for the TV truck to get a replay of it.
